Ha, classes today were cancelled, so am very free today. Am actually quite proud of myself today coz i specially came down to the library to do some homework, and tho i didn't exactly get much done, but hey, i actually DID get some stuff done. YAY :p learnt quite some stuff from my senior last night.... he told us that for today's class(which were cancelled mind u) we would be allocated HUGE projects just to see how we handled situations, resolved conflicts etc, i suppose that's why they call it the leadership and team-building module huh? Last year's batch, the students under my teacher actually were given this HUGE project where they were asked to go to this Muslim Children's home which housed juvenile delinquents, abandoned children and orphans, and the students were supposed to look for foster parents for these kids, so they had to do some "marketing" to arouse people's interest, then they were supposed interview prospective parents, come up with their conclusions, then get back to the Home's management staff, then the staff would decide which parents were suitable, then the students would have to go MCDS(i have no idea wat that is) to finalize stuff etc. Bottom line is that it was HUGE..... DEFINITELY WAY beyond ANYONE's wildest imagination and experience.... and the best thing is that its ok to screw up, as long as u learn from it coz u have to write journals plotting ur "journey", my senior actually had an 80 page journal.... there were bound to be problems, conflicts etc, and voicing it all out in ur journals and the teacher from there will decide if u've been active, whether u're learning both from the experience and from ur mistakes etc, at the same time she will see how well u've fared from feedback from the home, u noe, basically its like WOW...... and man, textbooks are like SOOooOOOooooOOOOooooOOOOoo expensive.... i'm intending to photostat them, in jb haha, so one of the textbooks i'm intending to lug all the way back to jb to photostat haha....hopefully its cheaper haha...... yah, library closing, better stop here haha......
